MotoGP » Marquez: I can't wait for season to begin


I'm on board with Marquez..."I can't wait for the season to begin!" haha! Never mind who your favourite rider is...if the season pans out as the testing suggests, there will be close racing right through the field. The Ducatis are more then promising, Honda and Yamaha are closely matched, there are new riders who are all impressive - especially Vinales - and the season starts in a couple of days! This is fan heaven!

MotoGP » MotoGP: 'Never go back to 800cc'


JcRacing:
JedPB67:
Sasha Alexandrovich: Go back to 500cc. Nothing wrong with twostrokes.
Two strokes with direct fuel injection run cleaner and more powerful than four strokes. I'd say it's just a matter of time we see them making a comeback. And that's looking forwards.
I'd be interested in your explanation of this. As far as I understand it, direct injection 2 strokes have some potential, but other than very qualified measures (e.g. at idle produces less CO than an equivalent 4 stroke...because it operates more like an 8-stroke in the circumstances, and adjusts its injectors to suit, or some other narrow operating range where it has an advantage). In other words, they've shown promise, and can build 2 strokes that are much more efficient and less polluting than old strokers, but they're not at the point of making any significant comeback. I'd welcome facts that support a more general revival.

F1 » Hamilton romps to Australian Grand Prix win


Wow...and people complain about MotoGP because only 4 bikes regularly share the podium! Doesn't look like I'll be watching too much F1 this year. Pity. Obviously, well done to Mercedes, you can hardly blame them for building the best car again this year,,,and Lewis, for not making any mistakes...but the local tiddly winks competition looks positively gripping in comparison!

MotoGP » Qatar MotoGP test times - Saturday (Final)


I'd like to get excited by these Ducati times - I really would - but Crazy Joe is only a quarter of a second ahead of his times from the same test last year. I'm more interested in the comments from the riders about how the bikes feel than simply who tops the time sheets in testing. They're all doing fairly short test runs, and who knows what they're testing? It's encouraging to see the top ten times within a second, and very encouraging to hear positive reports from Ducati factory lads. It's also good to see Suzuki appearing to be relatively close to the pace. We're still some distance from seeing a change to the status quo at the front, from my analysis.

MotoGP » EXCLUSIVE: Scott Redding - Q&A


Last year was a stepping stone, Scott... Moto2 to Honda Proddy is less of a step in power than Honda Proddy to factory Honda...It doesn't matter how you go in the first couple of races, but you need to make your mark here, and early in the season. The competition is more intense than even last year. Good luck, but don't feel entitled to anything more than this chance. The rest is up to you!
